Most poultry breeders and keepers that I know of have one or two favourite chooks in their flock. Particular fine specimens for breeders or best personality for some others.
Whatever your criteria is, show us your favourite chooks!

Is this commercial cross good eating? they look very thin with little breast meats or is that just the ones pictured that are crook?
